cool sound effects :D i liked the "Archers! ready!"
game is kinda glitchy but if you tweak few bugs. it will be addictive! Maybe add currency system, and more backgrounds

I love these tiny little solders! They are the best!
Overall, it is quit dummy, but very catchy game.
Nice shot!

@ mato26 Thanks for the feedback. I think I bit off more than I could chew with this game a lot of features I wanted to get in didn't end up making it. But I treat Ludum dare as a way to prototype games so I will continue developing it

Cool idea! The characters get bugged sometimes. :)

It lacks of balance and needs more polishing. There are some bugs like giving back HP to soldiers or infinite number of spawned soldiers. Also kinda laggy. However good job and good luck with next game jams.

Pretty buggy. I could only win most battles by cheating, because you can spawn infinite archers - only crossbow guys count towards your limit. I don't really see what legitimate strategy there was otherwise. The voice acting was fun though!

Its a fun idea, but some of the bugs with spawning soldiers, and there path finding getting all stuck on each other and with enemies regenerating HP, ruins it a little. The sound effects are great as are the graphics. Its to bad you ran out of time to really iron out all the bugs.

Fun idea, very unpolished which is understandable as it is a gamejam :D But good job look forward to progress in the next Ludum Dare!

The voice acting was funny :D
But the game itself was quite hard to control, as one person above I could also only win by cheating (since swordmen and archers didn't count towards the limit).
If you work on the idea and make it more solid in general it could become a decent game :)

Mini Submission FAQ

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

CAN I ENTER BOTH EVENTS?: You should pick 1 event, whichever you think it’ll do better in. If the idea is strong, and everything plays well enough, you can go Compo. If you’re a perfectionist, and would prefer people to play a more polished game, do the Jam. Many solo participants enter the Jam.

If you made 2 games, unfortunately, the website doesn’t support multiple submissions per user. To submit your 2nd game, you will have to make a 2nd account. Only do this if you made 2 games. Alternatively, if one game is better than the other, then consider just entering the better game.

CAN I KEEP WORKING UNTIL THE DEADLINE?: Yes! Immediately after the 48 or 72 hours, we do something called Submission Hour. As the name suggests, it’s an extra hour for you to package, upload, and submit your games. If there were catastrophic issues trying submitting your game, or you misunderstood how submissions work, that’s okay. It happens. We’re flexible. If you need advice, check with the folks on IRC. If you need an admin, get in touch.

CAN I KEEP WORKING ON MY GAME?: Oh definitely! You should! But for the sake of judging, keep the Compo or Jam version around. You can include a link to the Post-Compo/Post-Jam version of your game on your games page, but sure your main links are the original version.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate at least 20 games to improve your visibility (Coolness).

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crashes, win condition, or tiny bugs after the deadline. In a sense, this is like “porting” to support more players. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just fixing mistakes you should have caught had you been better rested.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.
